Before a commodity company can enter a private country to carry out advanced activities, a commodity company usually needs to have a legally binding agreement with the landowner. This can be either: landowners may be entitled to compensation from commodity companies for the impact of the company`s activities and infrastructure on their property. While commodity companies each have individual approaches to determining compensation amounts, these are the key factors that should be considered in the debate over the compensation component of the CCA. Commodity companies must meet the mandatory requirements of the Land Access Act when carrying out licensed activities on a landowner`s private land. These conditions may not be modified or deleted by agreement. All parties are encouraged to comply with the Code`s best practice recommendations. Landowners cannot be forced by commodity companies to enter into an opt-out agreement. Opt-out agreements must be concluded using the approved opt-out agreement form. The company must provide the owner with a copy of the opt-out information sheet (PDF, 223KB) before the landowner signs the agreement. Landowners should get legal advice before signing an opt-out agreement. Landowners do not receive notice of entry if they have entered into an opt-out agreement or if they have made a written declaration of waiver of the resource enterprise. For each type of agreement, there are different binding requirements, described in A guide to land access in Queensland (PDF, 1.8MB). However, the resource company may also enter private lands to carry out advanced activities, in cases where: b) if the activities of the resource company change significantly, you are able to carry out a review of the compensation to which you are entitled; and 48E owners or users must not unduly refuse to enter into access agreements before entering private land and starting advanced activities, commodity companies must negotiate and discuss access and compensation issues with landowners.
The process is described below. Commodity companies must register conduct and compensation agreements as well as opt-out agreements on the landowner`s title deed. The discretions set out in the agreement must be consistent: if a conduct and compensation agreement has been referred to the regional court or if the parties have agreed to initiate arbitration proceedings, the resource company must nevertheless submit a valid entry notification 10 working days before entry. . . .
